country. what was the meeting with president obama like in the oval office? >> well, first off, when you wake up and you have something very unexpected arise because it's a controversy that you don't believe has merit, but it's a controversy. when a controversy arises, that puts my commander, my commander-in-chief, that's who i work for, that puts my commander-in-chief in a difficult position and that's not my job. my responsibility is to support the mission, the soldiers who work for me and my commander-in-chief. as soon as i saw the controversy was going to reach the levels it did, i was confident at least i need today offer my resignation. >> sean: if he would have asked you to stay, would you have? >> i told president obama that day i would do whatever was best for the mission. i would be happy to go back and continue to command or if he decided to accept my resignation, in fact, i would move out. >> sean: and you voted for him in 2008. this happened in 2010. may i ask you did you vote for him in 2012. >> i'm a private citizen and i'll keep that to myself. >> sean: you're going to ke

obama nominated a uniquely qualified candidate to be secretary of defense. former senator chuck hagel, republican out of nebraska, puts country over party, and is a true independent, an independent thinker who will speak his mind. maybe that's why the republicans are crying foul. president obama nominated senator hagel despite early attempts by hagel critics to sideline the nomination. the president praised hagel for his impressive credentials. >> he is an american patriot. he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. as a young private and then a sergeant, he served with honor alongside his own brother. when chuck was hit by shrapnel, his brother saved him. when his brother was injured by a mine, chuck risked his life to pull him to safety. >> and there is much more. hagel is a decorated combat veteran and would be the first enlisted man to serve as secretary of defense, as well as the first vietnam veteran to take the post. hagel served on the senate foreign relations committee, and also on the intelligence committee in the senate. he led the veterans administration. he head

of the militia groups that may have been involved are very, very strong in that country. there's been a lot of criticism, you know, that president obama promised during the campaign to bring the killers of ambassador chris stevens to justice. obviously that hasn't happened yet. even though these are very different attacks, when you look back historically, the attack on the "uss cole" took about two years to get an arrest in that case. khalid sheikh mohammed was arrested about a year after the attacks on september 11th. so sometimes those arrests and investigations do take time, but one prime factor is the fact that they are just not getting a whole lot of help from a libyan government that is doing a lot of fighting with some of these militia's internally. >> chris lawrence reporting live from the pentagon this morning. >>> it looks like television dramas are going dark as more hit shows use violence and gore to grab you. so why do we have to feed our need for violence? we'll talk about that. ♪ [ male announcer ] born from the elements, destined to take them over. ♪ the sirius xm satell

-raising parity with the republicans. when obama ran in 2008, he got more. i look at other countries like germany. the labor party in germany never pulled more than 5%, but it is a counterweight, force to protect labor. the reason i supported ralph nader and voted green is not because i believe anyone is going to win, but ralph is right. we need to build five, 10, 15 million people who begin to put pressure on the democratic party from the other side. this policy of voting for the least worst, voting in elections were the primary emotion is fear of the other. it is fear that homosexual couples will teach your children in kindergarten, whatever wacky idea that have. romney was a corporate -- where did obamacare come from? it was first put in practice by romney in massachusetts and then it was adopted by the obama. it is a completely faux the date. it is part of resistance, but not enough. i actually agree with your. and the work you are doing, and when i talk about a sport, high and not sitting at home watching c-span awaiting for a spark. but i think that we cannot get demoralized with numbers, a
the man who helped shape president obama's concept that with a combination of drones, cyber warfare, special forces you can actually go out and defend america's interest without staying inside countries, without trying to rewire them. but i think that you'll find that both these men, both mr. brennan and chuck hagel, are coming in at exactly the moment when the light footprint strategy has begun to hit some real resistance. the u.s. has not figured out how to intervene in syria in an effective way, it's obviously run into some difficulties in sort of the end of its cyber campaign for now in iran or at least we think it has. and so the question is whether or not these two men working together can sort of forge some very new and different ways. for hagel it's a particularly complex issue because he's got to figure out a way to cut the pentagon budget, something he has been very clear has been bloated. this is something that don rumsfeld tried and failed to do. it's something that bob gates tried and failed to do in any serious way. and now, given the budget pressures, this is going to
the country's tried to take, the government's tried to take a big step forward, under the clinton administration and then under the first year of the obama adminiration. and each time the senate killed it. >> yeah. but the key thing there is that each time both the clinton administration and the obama administration tried to do this it was essentially a top-down, inside the beltway strategy. we are going after and trying to cajole and convince and persuade the members of the senate and the house to pass this legislation without first engaging the broad public and building a citizens movement, a issue public as i talked about before that was actually demanding change. because in the end politicians care about their job. and if they don't feel like there's a political price to pay for opposing action on climate change or alternatively a political opportunity to be had by being a leader on this issue, it's very easy for them to say, "you know what? i've got a lot of other things here on my plate to deal with. i've got lots of lobbyists coming into my office as well as people back hom
office, he has been working for one of the top conservative think tanks in the country, the heritage foundation. now mr. addington has gotten a big promotion there. he is going to lead the foundation for legal and judicial studies, focusing apparently on president obama having too much executive power. mr. addington says the obama administration has made some, quote, questionable steps. and so the conservative movement has installed its most famous and perhaps most extreme modern advocate of unlimited executive power for the presidency as the lunch monitor watching for this presidency ex-earthing too much executive power now that bush is gone and there is a new guy in town. but hey, it appears to be new project season in washington, where if you are a certain political persuasion, being wrong never lasts long. >> whatever else you can say about this war, let me just make my point, we don't need to refight the whole history of vietnam. >> that is the danger of saddam. >> it's not going to happen. it's not going to happen. this is going to be a two-month war, not an eight-year war. >>
washington being dysfunctional. if in two years the country wants to elect, you know, a completely democratic house that will agree with everything that the obama administration wants, then we'll do that and we'll electric more democratic senators, the democrats can control the house, the senate and the white house and we'll give the president a rubber stamp on everything and washington will be totally fixed and we'll live in this great, great european country. so maybe it will go that way. but if it doesn't go that way and it's not washington, it's the people that send these representatives to washington who disagree with -- there's a 50/50 people split in this country of people who love entitlements because they're people on the receiving end and there's people on the other side who is funding everything. i don't know. i don't know whether it's a broken washington or we're just at a crossroads in the way the republic is governed and we have to make a decision as a country which way we head. >> right. that's definitely a lot of the ltage. there's still a lot of assets on the other side of th
